Starting Cattle

Healthy cattle gain more from the start — and every day after that. Whether you’re a stocker, backgrounder, nutritionist or feedyard manager, our cattle feed additives can help your cattle stay healthier and perform better from the moment they arrive.

Medicated feed additives from Zoetis help you control or treat gain-robbing illnesses like coccidiosis and bovine respiratory disease while increasing feed intake, efficiency and average daily gain.

Gain pounds more effectively with BOVATEC®

Choose the ionophore feed additive that delivers more performance:

  • Increases feed intake without compromising feed efficiency1-4
  • Simplifies your starter rations because it does not require a step-up program
  • Controls coccidiosis
  • Can be fed in combination with AUREOMYCIN®, giving you more flexibility for disease treatment or control. When BOVATEC is fed in combination with AUREOMYCIN, a veterinary feed directive is required.

  • Protects against coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii
  • Reduces treatment costs and performance losses associated with clinical outbreaks5
